LFA 850 H – Horizontal Baler
The LFA 850 H is one of our largest semi-automatic horizontal balers which can produce bales of cardboard and plastic film in excess of 1t due to its high 60t compaction force and large bale sizes. The upgraded 15kW motor runs a fast 50 second cycle which, in tandem with other features, achieves throughputs of up to 3t/hr. The extra-large 5mm thick, 2000mm x 1050mm hopper is perfect for large bulky materials, and for feeding via mechanical systems like tele-handlers, bin lifts, conveyors etc. The 5 wire, horizontal tie system means tying off bales is quick and simple which helps achieve the greater throughputs. The second bale ejection method is a simple system which uses the material from the next bale to push out the already created bale. Although this is a great economical system, it is best suited for one type of material as baling two or more types of material allows cross contamination. The most common types of materials baled are cardboard, soft and rigid plastics, RDF and paper, but it can also bale other materials.

We can modify the LFA 850 H baler to your specific needs. We can attach an integrated bin tipper, door dampener and retention claws. We can also adapt the hopper to suit your feeding method, the shearing blades to suit your material and we can also upgrade the motor to decrease the cycle time. For further customisation, contact us and we will try to meet all requirements.

The LFA 850 H is very easy to use.
Step 1 – Feeding
This step is straight forward – press the green ‘go’ button to put the baler into idle mode. Start feeding material into the hopper. A magic eye sensor sits at the bottom of the hopper and once the sensor detects material, the baler starts up and runs a full cycle compacting all of the material into the bale chamber. The material catches on the retention claws preventing it from springing back into the charge box. Continue feeding material into the hopper as it will sit on top of the ram head dropping into the charge box when the ram returns.
Step 2 – When is the bale full?
This baler has an auto stop feature so when the bale is full, lights flash on the control panel, the ram head stays forward, and the material stays under compression.
Step 3 – Tying off the bale
This baler is a horizontal tie which makes this step very easy. At the side of the bale chamber there are slots where you can see the ram head which has bale wire channels. Thread the wire (straight end first) through this channel and the wire will come out to the other side. There are slots in the door, so both ends of the wire now need to be threaded through these. When both ends of the wire are together, thread the straight end of the wire through the loop end, pull the wire tight and wrap the wire around itself 3-4 times. Repeat this on the other wires.
Step 4 – Ejecting the bale
Once a full bale has been created, it need to be ejected. Next to the door there are controls for the hydraulic door, press on both of these buttons until the door is unclamped. Swing the door open past 90° and place a pallet in front of the baler. On the main control panel, press the reverse button until the ram head is all the way back. Feed the machine with material and press the forward button. The material just fed into the machine will start pushing the bale out. Do this 3-4 times until the bale is fully ejected. You now have a bale sat on a pallet ready to be stored for collection. Close the door and hold down the two hydraulic door buttons to clamp the door shut.
As simple as that! It probably takes longer to read the operation than to implement it. As part of the package, one of our trusty engineers will come to site and show the team how to operate it in person. Training certification can be supplied if required.
*Note – Refurbished models may vary in operation slightly, but the principle will remain very similar.
